|A Bosko Cartoon Collection - Hugh Harman and Rudy Ising|
Bosko is an animated cartoon character created by Hugh Harman and Rudy Ising in 1927 and the first recurring character in the Leon Schlesinger cartoon series Looney Tunes.

|Tokyo Woes - Leon Schlessinger|
Trivia This cartoon (along with other "Hook" cartoons) was found by accident in the garage of a former soldier who had saved them, thinking they were "Private Snafu" shorts. The cartoon was finally discovered in the mid-1990s when an A&E documentary on war cartoons began production. It turned out that Warners made these shorts for the US Navy and because they wanted to keep this a secret, all original negatives were destroyed shortly after release...

|Boom Boom - Leon Schlessinger|
An early Porky war cartoon, with Porky as a doughboy in World War I. This one also has Beans, an early character who was in a few shorts, but didn't pan out as well as they probably wanted him to at Termite Terrace. Decent cartoon, moves fairly fast with very good animation.
